Recent bits

Three stories of interest today:
  • The long-brewing Harrisburg scandal over use of legislative staff in campaign capacities (as revealed by unsubtle bonus payments) has reached the indictment stage. The Democrats (staffers, that is) took the hits, although future reviews of Republican behavior are promised.

  • Closer to home, the labor union PAC which deluded themselves that they could make political donations without accounting for their spending just learned otherwise. Sorry, Doc. Should be interesting to see what they were trying to hide...

  • And a small news bit that makes me happy: the city is testing out solar-powered trash compactors, which can hold four times the trash of the litter baskets they would replace, while saving energy on fuel collection. I hope they work out!
Hope you're all having a pleasant summer.
